given my blog is generally rooted in the domestic sphere, but if you haven’t seen the excellent new blog, ‘My fault, I’m female’, I’d encourage you to take a look.
The tales of everyday, unthinking sexism and misogyny are pretty breathtaking. If anyone thinks that feminism is irrelevant and that the battle is won, I think some of the stories on MFIF would challenge them to think again.
I knit, sew, garden and bake because I want to, and because I enjoy it. I would be very snitty with anyone who told me it was my ‘job’ because I’m a woman. I can also wire a plug and put a bookcase together, but I don’t blog about that because I think it’s a bit dull. Mr SowandSew, by the way, as well as being electrical whizz and henhouse builder extraordinaire, can sew better than I can, and has recently developed a mean flapjack recipe. I like it that we can both do what we enjoy. He’s a man, I’m a woman, but we’re both more than that. I can’t really understand why this is so hard for some people to grasp.
